In this chat, we’re talking about chapters 10-20 of Fire Emblem: Awakening. There will be spoilers, so be wary!
WELCOME TO FE:A CHAT PART TWOOOOOO
we are back for round 2, having played through chapter 20 of fire emblem: awakening
because i am bad at time management i played almost all of it in one weekend
so i basically was just playing fire emblem for ten hours a day for the past couple of days
Summer: how did it feel
Jillian: brain smoothing
Summer: it really is cozy!
fire emblem is cozy!
Jillian: fire emblem is a cozy game! i will die on this hill!
Summer: battles are so comforting. go figure!
Jillian: i will say i’m definitely firmly in the phase of only caring about the extra battles so i can grind for supports and stuff
that’s what i spent the majority of my time doing
Summer: yes i LOVE supports
Jillian: the “main story” or whatever is cool too i guess
Summer: every time i get back to the main storyline i’m like. OH LMAO?
Jillian: RIGHT lol
i guess we can talk about the story tho
Summer: i guess i was kind of invested in the beginning but i feel like i don’t 100% understand the conflict post time skip lol
Jillian: yeah same
Summer: sometimes i feel like wait aren’t the risen the issue here
but they’re not sdkjglksjlgk
Jillian: the risen are just there
i guess the main issue is the fell dragon is going to awaken at some point, which we know because lucina came from the future to tell us
Summer: ok KIDS
i fucking love it
it’s so ridiculous
Jillian: so now we have to……scour the earth for all the little pieces of the fire emblem so we can perform some ritual to awaken the……other dragon? the good one? and that will save everyone
Summer: okay yes
you’re right. i forget the fire emblem is real
Jillian: personally i only care about marrying people off
Summer: same i just want to see stupid supports!
Jillian: the fire emblem is indeed an actual object in this game, turns out
oh i will also take a moment of silence for basilio, who was a cool dude. wish he didn’t die rip.
that was a really good scene though
Jillian: it was! definitely one of the best so far
oh wait also robin keeps having these weird migranes
Summer: eyes emoji….
Jillian: seems like the evil dude is in her head or something, trying to get her to betray chrom possibly?
Summer: i think i know why based off of fanfiction spoilers
like i don’t know for Sure
Jillian: and as we know, in lucina’s timeline, chrom is killed by someone close to him
i love lucina
Jillian: i think we’ve gotten different fanfiction spoilers which is funny to me
like, i also got spoiled for something i think but i don’t think it’s the same thing as you
Summer: wait sdkfjslkf we can compare post chapter 25
Jillian: ok asldkfjdks
anyway that’s all the plot i can remember happening
Summer: yeah same . we defeated the dude? walhart ?
who like. started a war….for some reason
and had really good weapons
so the last of the game will be getting the rest of the fire emblem pieces
Jillian: seems like it
Summer: ok who are your favorite characters, 10 chapters later
Jillian: lon’qu is still up there for me. say’ri is a brand new fav. also cherche. i still love cordelia, but now i also love sumia because i started actually using her.
Summer: god same i love lon’qu even more after getting some of his story
Jillian: ME TOO
i also really love stahl because he seems like a sweetie but i don’t have very many of his supports yet
OH AND TIKI. TIKI IS COOL.
I LOVE HER idk why i took to her so much quickly than nowi
i love dragonstone+
Jillian: nowi is also cool but tiki is just more powerful right off the bat
Summer: i love morgan and lucina. rip to your morgan
Jillian: RIP MORGAN LOL
so what happened was
there is a paralogue battle with this kid named morgan
usually in the paralogue battles you can talk to the character to recruit them
unfortunately i did not pay enough attention to morgan and he uh. died. and then i saved before i could go back and redo it. and then i found out that morgan is kind of a really important character lol.
Jillian: so now i have to play the whole rest of the game without ROBIN’S SON. without GETTING ANY OF THAT STORY. lmao
morgan is a good kid i really like them
Jillian: i was having a good time reading the trivia on his wiki page though
i did get kjelle, tho, who is sully’s kid. and i love her.
do you have any other kids so far?
Summer: i have
a lot ok i have
noire, who is tharja’s daughter
i married her to lon’qu. they are a hilarious family
i have panne’s son, i married her to libra, i do not remember his name but he looks like a stinky teen boy
i have owain, lissa’s son and i married her to ricken. he’s like, fine
i got severa who is cordelia and frederick’s child and she’s a brat i LOVE her
that might be all of them…i think i’m gonna chill out on getting children now
Jillian: omg you have so many people married already
i just have chrobin and then sully and stahl
BUT i do have plans
Summer: after my first one i was like obsessed with getting kids
Summer: and then i was like. i’m not using any of you
Jillian: the kids are just for supports
cordelia as a mom rocks
Jillian: so i was going to do lon’qu and cherche, because i like that his supports with her unlocked some of his backstory
but then i saw his supports with cordelia and they made me scream
also i think i’m going to have frederick and sumia get married
Summer: i think that’s a good idea
Jillian: frankly aside from that i don’t know
because i don’t use a lot of the other men
Summer: i told you this but oh my god cordelia and frederick’s S support made me insane
Jillian: YOU DID TELL ME SLDKFJD
Summer: like their support chain was like really cute and frankly kind of flirty
Jillian: it’s hilarious that she. doesn’t have supports with chrom. like at all.
Summer: like cordelia keeps bullying frederick to talk to her about his love life
and you’re like oh that’s classic and cute
and like, she’s sumia’s best friend and frederick is chrom’s Guy so you’re like. Yeah Makes Sense
BUT THEN! THE S SUPPORT! FREDERICK IS LIKE. CORDELIA I HAVE FEELINGS FOR YOU WHENEVER YOU ASKED ME TO TALK ABOUT MY LOVE LIFE I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT YOU. AND CORDELIA IS LIKE. WELL I’;M IN LOVE WITH CHROM
what the hell
Summer: and i was like????????????????????????????? W WEHEN?
i thought oh bummer i should have seen maybe some of her supports with chrom before doing this i regret this this is weird. but then she and chrom don’t have supports.
like tharja is obsessed with robin
and i know this
Jillian: there are sooooo many supports i need to see
also say’ri and robin’s supports. interesting.
Jillian: like. gay.
Summer: i wonder if they’re like that with mrobin too and they just didn’t feel like re-writing them too much
Jillian: ohhhhh i wonder
i don’t know who to pair with lissa because she’s too gay with maribelle
but i want her to get married so i can get her kid
Summer: god it’s so annoying. dragons exist why can’t people be gay
Jillian: i guess i can bring ricken out of retirement
Summer: yeah i married her to ricken because he’s the only one that looks her age
Jillian: what if i marry her to that weird farm boy
i think i read a fic where she married him and i was like hey sure
Jillian: why not i guess
Summer: i hate that robin can S support the second gen lol
Jillian: yeah weird
don’t they have to go back to the future at some point
Summer: right? that would be so depressing
robin and lucina’s A support is really sweet
like around those lines
Jillian: aww i can’t wait to see it
Summer: when lucina is your daughter i mean. and of course she is because why would you not marry chrom.
Jillian: i was just going to ask if the supports are different if she’s robin’s daughter vs not
Summer: i bet they are because they’re very centered on Being a Daughter
Jillian: so then i also wonder if she has different daughter supports with other moms—is robin’s special because she’s robin? or is it the same no matter who her mom’s is
Summer: do you think the kids’ support with their dad is the same regardless of who the dad is
Jillian: YEAH I WONDER
i feel like they’re probably the same
there’s no way they’d write that many supports
Summer: right that would be so much work
Jillian: although i guess the kids’ hair colors change depending who the dad is
Summer: which is cute
Jillian: it’s soooo cute
i just wish any of the dads had fun colored hair
Summer: ugh right they’re so boring
Jillian: like, olivia’s kid should get to have pink hair
Summer: i agree…..do you use olivia
Jillian: i’ve been trying to use her in some battles to get her supports but not really
Summer: i wanna watch her supports with chrom
because he can only marry so many people….
and she is one of them…
Jillian: she’s hard to use because she really does die very easily lol
i’ve gotten one of her supports with chrom so far! but her supports are weirdly hard to get
Summer: no that makes sense
but yeah she dies super easily
Jillian: you can’t really put her anywhere an enemy can reach her but if she’s too far away she’s useless anyway
Summer: using a dancer in fe3h is so different b/c my dancers were flayn (died always) felix (king) and marianne (Strong as hell)
Jillian: olivia does technically have a sword so i guess i could try to make her a beast but
Summer: oh shit right
Jillian: so far she’s not a great unit lol
Summer: ok i think tharja is my favorite unit she’s so strong and a weirdo
Jillian: but that’s what i thought about sumia and now she’s pretty good! so anything can happen
Summer: i also love sumia
sumia cordelia and tharja
Jillian: i liked tharja right away but i haven’t been using her as much
Summer: i have a similar problem w/ getting more kids because i def use more women than men
Jillian: yeah rip
Summer: and like. why would i make sumia marry gauius. sorry he’s just not good enough for her
Jillian: it’s not our fault that the women are all cool and hot and the men are weird
hey so. who’s gauius. lol
did i miss him too
he was like a thief early on
Jillian: oh my god lmao
Summer: who was like “i just wanna steal stuff i don’t wanna fight people”
Jillian: aw man i wish i had recruited him
i’m gonna have to play this game all over again huh
i guess that’s how fire emblem gets you
Summer: no me too sdlkjgtlkdfjds i’m kind of tempted to play on classic tbh
which isn’t a good way to get supports lol
Jillian: this game is already so hard i’m never playing on classic
i think fe:a is harder than fe3h
or maybe i’m just worse at it for some reason
Summer: i agree, not having the divine pulse…
Jillian: I MISS DIVINE PULSE
i had to do tiki’s paralogue like four times
Summer: like i make so many stupid decisions
Jillian: me too rip
Summer: and i’m like. Why did i do that
Jillian: i need to start saving after every turn
cheater’s divine pulse
Summer: YEAH LOL
Jillian: OH also after our last chat i started letting the game auto-assign weapons and stuff before the battles and it’s so nice
i do have to keep remembering to buy vulneraries and stuff tho because sometimes i just don’t have any left and i don’t notice
Summer: IT’S GREAT i try to be a little more intentional now but it helps me actually know What i have
the game kept trying to give chrom a levin sword
Summer: and i was like. Please do not do that. Thank you.
Jillian: i love a levin sword tho
for lon’qu and say’ri especially
Summer: i give it to robin and morgan!
i promoted lon’qu to an assassin so he can do bows it’s nice
Jillian: ohhhh interesting i kept him on swords
oh are you mostly using magic or a sword for robin
Summer: robin is mostly magic but since the levin sword is powered by magic i was like O Perfect
Jillian: i actually don’t have a single bow user lol
i mean like. i have them. but i don’t use them.
Summer: yeah lon’qu is my only one lol
Jillian: also i made lissa and maribelle war monks so they can have axes
I LOVE IT
Jillian: it’s so good
Summer: lissa with an axe rocks. it makes me so happy
half the time they don’t do any damage but it’s ok they’re having fun
Summer: my sumia is a healer and my cordelia is a magic user which is nice
Jillian: wait i should make sumia a healer what am i doing
cordelia is mostly a lance user for me but she does some magic sometimes
Summer: YEAH her magic is not as strong as her lance but
it’s great. promotion is definitely easier to understand in fe3h
Jillian: yeah way easier
but also in fe3h i’m more tempted to plan out units really strategically and here i’m like, whatever
they can do whatever they want
Jillian: i don’t care if i have a bow user or not
Summer: go with the flow. do what you’re supposed to
i have so many second seals that i’ll never use
they just keep piling up
Jillian: who am i to fuck with nature like that
Summer: even in fe3h i basically. made people the class they were supposed to be.
Jillian: maybe on my second playthrough i’ll change everything up but i’m also the person who always makes felix and sylvain the exact same class every time i play fe3h
Summer: the craziest thing i did was felix dancer but thats not crazy that’s big brained
Jillian: felix SHOULD be the dancer
it just feels right imo
Summer: good story tension. he’s sword. he’s magic. perfect!
Jillian: i refuse to even make felix a brawler even though it’s one of his strengths
Summer: i wanna do a route where he’s a brawler but i think i would have to do blue lions again
which is FINE i just am doing another golden deer now, theoretically
Jillian: and at a certain point in the game i stop letting sylvain use lances altogether
i keep saying i’m going to do golden deer again and i am but also. i want to do blue lions again. i miss them so much.
Summer: i’m doing hard mode golden deer. i just need to get into the flow i’m on like. chapter 14 maybe
Jillian: i’m still on chapter 12 or 13 of black eagles
but i don’t want to play it while i’m doing fe:a
Summer: lmao rip to my abandoned church route…
Jillian: church route sounds boring sorry
Summer: i think i do wanna play fe:a again especially because in the ng+
there are………………………………more recruitable characters
Jillian: THERE’S NG+ IN FEA?
Summer: that you get through spotpass?
Jillian: OH DLC?
Summer: that’s like the wifi thing on 3ds?
so i think they’re free. need to confirm.
Jillian: ok we’re definitely going to have to figure out how that works
Summer: YEAH. can i tell you who the recruitables are
Jillian: for my second run i’m going to do so much research
i didn’t want to look anything up before i started it because i wanted to avoid spoilers as much as possible
Summer: i found out when i was trying to see if i could be gay
Jillian: but next time i play it i’m going to be so strategic about getting the best supports and stuff
i wonder if you can unlock supports and skill levels in ng+ like you can in fe3h
Summer: ugh i wish
Jillian: i guess we’ll find out
Summer: but yeah i wanna figure out how it works because….i want these characters lol
i love awakening!
Jillian: same that sounds fun
i’m having a lot of fun playing on the 3ds again
although it does hurt my hands
Summer: ME TOO. i think i’m going to get the other one on the 3ds that’s not fates but the remake of an older title
lol i have an ergo grip that i do not use
Jillian: i actually want to play fates
i follow some people who like it even though everyone else says it’s trash
and i’m curious
Summer: SAME it’s just three game cards
Jillian: omg what
Summer: they split it into three
for some reason
Jillian: ok weird
Summer: it’s kind of confusing. which is why i picked awakening LOL
Jillian: i’m just going to download it from the internet anyway
Summer: i wanna play the gamecube one with ike
Jillian: YEAH same
Summer: Understand Super Smash Brothers
Jillian: eventually i will play every fire emblem game
this is my mission
Summer: WHAT A GOAL
Jillian: we can do it
Summer: we just gotta go 5 more chapters
Jillian: wait is that all that’s left
Summer: i think so
Summer: I KNOW
Jillian: ok i need to marry everyone asap
Summer: i feel like there’s so much story.
Jillian: i thought i had way more time
Summer: but. ! oh well
just get a bunch of the risen boxes
Jillian: i’m about to start buying those little boxes that summon risen
Summer: PERFECT LOL
Jillian: KLSDjgskdlf yeah
i’m so glad those exist
i haven’t used one yet but i’m gonna buy the whole supply
i guess if you can buy infinite amounts of them you could theoretically just do that for sooooo many battles and literally unlock every support
Summer: YEAH….the patience
Jillian: i’m NOT thinking about it
Summer: god that would be dedication
i’m just telling myself. we are not Meant to get every support.
Jillian: the thing is there are so many characters i truly do not care about
Summer: The Game Wants You To Replay. And Get The Kids. In Different Replays.
no same i do not care about donnell!!!!!!!!!!
Jillian: We Are Not Meant To Have All The Kids At Once
We Would Be Too Powerful
fuck donnel i didn’t even want to recruit him
same with ricken no offense but nobody invited you
Summer: ricken is a baby he needs to go home
UGH the thing about the kids is that THEY ALSO ALL HAVE SUPPORTS WITH EACH OTHER
Jillian: I KNOW
and i need to see them
Summer: I KNOW I NEED TO SEE THEM
god i need someone to tell me what to ship
Summer: i am not a free thinker
Jillian: it’s so hard to have to discover things for yourself
i’m a little gamefaqs walkthrough baby i need someone to hold my hand and tell me what to do
any last thoughts before we play the rest of fe:a?
Summer: i love my daughter lucina
Jillian: me too she’s so good
Summer: i want to main her in smash
Jillian: ME TOO
this has really just made me want to play more smash
now that i know who more of the characters are
and fire emblem heroes
Jillian: let’s play smash together when we finish this game
do a little fire emblem tournament
